GAME RECAP

Jeff Hornacek scored seven of his 25 points in overtime as the Utah Jazz blew a 21-point, fourth-quarter lead but rallied to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 133-124.

Hornacek, who had his potential game-winning shot blocked by Stanley Roberts as time expired in regulation, keyed a 13-1 run early in overtime. Hornacek's performance helped offset a career-best 38 points by Timberwolves point guard Stephon Marbury.

Tom Gugliotta's jumper gave Minnesota a 116-114 lead early in the extra session, but Howard Eisley answered with two free throws to spark the game-clinching spurt. Hornacek drained a three-pointer and Marbury, who scored the final four points of regulation, missed a driving layup.

Karl Malone, who scored a season-high 33 points, hit a free throw before Hornacek sank two foul shots. Marbury drained one from the stripe but Hornacek answered with a long jumper as the shot clock was winding down. Malone fed Greg Foster for a three-point play to cap the run, building a 127-117 lead with 78 seconds remaining.

"Well, you know we got the lead and put it on coast and it cost us in terms of playing extra minutes," Hornacek said. "But in overtime we kind of said OK, let's get back what we're supposed to, make the extra passes and things will be all right and that's the way it was."

"He (Hornacek) came up and made a big shot, he made a lot of big shots in the overtime," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "He kept us alive. Otherwise, we were really struggling. He had a great finish."

Utah (7-6) improved to 18-2 at home all-time against the Timberwolves. The defending Western Conference champion Jazz have won two straight games to move back over .500 for only the second time this season.

"Well, we played two quarters and an overtime. We just haven't been able to play four quarters," Sloan added.

Marbury, who had nine first-half points, added 10 assists for Minnesota, which has dropped three straight.

The Timberwolves trailed by as many as 27 points in the second half and faced a 96-75 deficit heading into the fourth quarter. Gugliotta scored four of his 16 points on a 16-3 burst to open the period, and a pair of free throws by Marbury cut the deficit to 99-91 with 6:46 to play.

Malone's two foul shots built the lead to 105-93 but the Wolves reeled off the next eight points. Sam Mitchell and Terry Porter scored four points apiece to help pull Minnesota within 105-101 with 3:54 to go.

Minnesota continued to rally and Marbury's driving lay-in tied the game, 112-112, with 1:05 left. Hornacek, who added seven boards and five assists, answered with a tough fallaway to put the Jazz back in front. Marbury missed a floater in the lane but redeemed himself by stealing the ball from Eisley and going for an uncontested, game-tying layup with 3.8 seconds left.

"It was a team effort to fight and get back but Utah deserved to win this game," Marbury said. "They played real hard and shot the ball extremely well. It just wasn't our night because we didn't put two halves together."

Marbury drained 4-of-6 three-pointers but Minnesota shot just 43 percent (40-of-93) from the field overall. Utah made 60 percent (44-for-73) and hit 6-of-9 three-pointers.

Malone, who had nine rebounds and seven assists, scored 26 points after halftime, including 12 in the fourth quarter. Eisley chipped in 13 points and 10 assists before fouling out.

The Jazz led 31-21 early in the second quarter and went on a 15-4 run. Shandon Anderson scored seven of his 10 points on that spurt and Bryon Russell added six, including the layup that increased the lead to 46-25 with 6:10 to go.

Russell scored 15 of his 17 points in the period, helping the Jazz to a 64-40 cushion at the half. Adam Keefe contributed 11 of his season-high 17 in the second quarter as the Jazz shot a blistering 87 percent (13-of-15) from the field.

"I think a lot of teams when things start going against them, get down and get outscored by 15 or 17 they collapse," Keefe said. "Our guys didn't do that. They fought and fought, they scrapped and they came away with the win."

Kevin Garnett had 15 points before fouling out and Cherokee Parks added 15 and nine boards for Minnesota, which committed just seven turnovers but was outrebounded, 46-34.
